Customer Question

I have acquired an old pressed flower piece of art. It is approximately 18" tall by 13" wide inside an inlaid wood frame. The flowers are matted on a black background and include Lily of the Valley, Queen's Ann Lace, blue flowers, small wheat stalks and colored small maple leaves. It is professionally mounted and framed and on the back it is signed Betty Glissendorf. 1984. I don't know if she was the artist or the owner.
